Yosemite Arrival

On September 1st I departed from San Jose heading towards Yosemite National Park. In preparing my route, I looked for a very direct road with lots of curves. Inadvertently my route took me right to the Lick Observatory, which I was not able to tour since it was unfortunately closed until later in the day.

My travelogue report for the ride through this part of California can be read here. Photos along the road from Bodega Bay, through San Francisco to San Jose can be seen under here.

In the following map the red arrows show my route across the Central Valley of California from San Jose to Yosemite, where I found a room for the night at the White Wolf Lodge. (Click on the map to enlarge.)
